I don't see how it's possible for this card to be pulled (with release date of April 25th), submitted to BGS, graded and returned to owner, who then in turns needs to get it to Virginia before May 11th. 16 day turnaround if you pull it on release date before the bounty goes away...... seems more like a well thought out marketing ploy than a realistic goal for anyone.


I'll use myself for example. If I pulled the card tomorrow, I'd have to mail it to Dallas because I am in Pennsylvania, hope it goes through BGS quick enough, doesn't get screwed up, comes back with the right grade, and then I'm able to make the 6 hour drive to Blowout cards in that time frame......

Pull, fly to Dallas, do a walkthrough grade, fly to VA and hand to BO.

Beckett will roll out the red carpet to get this card in a BGS holder.

Should just break on Blowout TV w Matt. Have Blowout then immediately send the card to BGS (probably can pull some strings to get it through ASAP) and sent right back to Blowout where you meet them to collect......

Speaking of doing breaks...If this is pulled by a breaker i pray that it is a reputable and honest one.

I would not worry much on the details to be honest. If you do land it, send to BGS and come back BGS 9.5 or better - that $60K will be waiting for you no matter if it is past May 11th.

Sure they can stand their ground but then you just got another route. This is basically guaranteed $ for whoever pulls it. $60K is lower end of price range based on the hype around him now.

Hope he turns out to be like AJ card sales last year. Heck he might be better due to international appeal.

But what if it comes back a dime? lol

Edit: I read it wrong lol BGS 9.5 or better. Still if it came back a 10 I would negotiate.

3 positives all around .

#1 - Blowout marketing dollars at its best. just the yahoo article will get them to everyone . in turn it will bring in sales sales sales

#2 - Who ever pulls it is , if not guaranteed because of deadline, a good 60k payday.

#3 - The card will be out and everyone will be well informed of its whereabouts . not like past disasters .

Typically Topps Chrome RC autos go for more than their Bowman Chrome RC counterpart. Do we think this will be true for Ohtani or will the BC get the premium because it is the first chrome auto?

Blowout TV upped the ante - If the card is pulled live by Matt, the Bounty is $70k

Random thoughts.......

1. The pressure on BGS for example to put a grade of a 9.5 on this card, obviously they are well aware of the significance of this card. Do they lessen their standards to bump it. What if the autograph is clearly not a 10, would be hilarious for someone to have PSA grade it and screw Beckett.

2. Watch the Ohtani super be off centered or dinged. Guessing Topps quality control was all over this one, heck maybe they started the hype with the bounties put on the card to pad their pocket books as well. It's obvious the craze and buzz this specific card has across the world and industry wide.

3. Lets say someone very well off financially pulls\obtains the card and decides to burn it on camera.

4. This sure is ultimately exciting.........still on the fence if it's good for the hobby though.

in my opinion, I don't think this card is ever really in a pack anywhere, right now I think it is locked up in a safe never to be pulled out. If Ohtani becomes the real deal and is multiple 20 game winner and 300 homers, then this card magically is "pulled"

In most cases the first Bowman Chrome auto and the Bowman Chrome RC auto aren't the same card. I think BC will be the higher priced of the two, just my opinion of course.

Imagine the run on Target this summer...

Boxes will go for $60.

Card could sit in some box speculators hoard for years.

I hope Houdini pulls it in a group break, that would be epic and well deserved.
